  7. Carlos Acosta - Cubania - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Tuesday 28 July 2015Performance 27 July - 2 August, 2015

    Acosta, pictured performing Tocororo with Veronica Corveas, proves that at 42 he can still hold his own with dancers more than a decade younger.

    Press Review 3Vanessa Keys, Telegraph, Tuesday 28 July 2015Performance 27 July - 2 August, 2015

    Alexander Varona as the cigar-puffing, shoe-shuffling, gyrating rival in Tocororo is a stand-out, and Acosta transitions flawlessly from ballet maestro to boyhood breakdancer and back again. There’s energy aplenty but as a whole, lacks the passion to make a mark.

    Press Review 3Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 28 July 2015Performance 17 & 18 July 2015

    The evening’s final work is Arthur Pita’s Facada. Vasiliev is splendidly droll as the bridegroom who gets last-minute cold feet, and Osipova cuts loose with fabulous abandon as the jilted bride who, having wept several bucketfuls of tears, sets forth to extract revenge.
